Encouragement For The Journey

Shalom, shalom my dearest Family and Friends,

“Count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the proving of your belief works endurance. And let endurance have a perfect work, so that you be perfect and complete, lacking in naught. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of Elohim, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it shall be given to him. But he should ask in belief, not doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For that man should not think that he shall receive whatever from the Master – he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” ~ James 1:2-8

The mature warrior-bride listens and obeys the word of Yah, guards His every word and only does so by the empower of the Spirit, never relying on the arm of the flesh!

I want to encourage every recipient to prayerfully consider the message contained in these two short blogs.  He who has ears to hear, let him hear!

MAKE ME A TABERNACLE ~ EXODUS 25:8

DO YOU KNOW WHAT TIME IT IS?

AN ARTICLE THAT ATTEMPTS TO ANSWER THE QUESTION…

“IS THE WORLD-WIDE HEBREW ROOTS / MESSIANIC MOVEMENT A COUNTERFEIT / HERETICAL MOVEMENT?”

IN A WORD – YES!    … and NO!!

(Disclaimer – All generalizations, theories and conclusions are the uniquely held perspective of the author and are presented herein for your prayerful consideration… I hope you’ll endure with me till the end and that you will be greatly edified in your faith.)

Please allow me a moment or two and let me explain my seeming contradictory answer…

Yes, I firmly believe that the Hebrew Roots / Messianic movement was / is the work of the Spirit of YHWH in these very last days and was bequeathed to the body of Messiah as a wondrous blessing straight from Heaven’s throne.  However, I also firmly believe that when left as an end unto itself, the Hebrew Roots Movement is 100% heretical and most of its adherents / advocates are somewhat deceived!

I am writing this article with the hopes of conveying three very profound, paradigm-altering ideas to every reader.

1.     1.  The Set-apart Spirit of YHWH has seemingly been diligently working over the last 500 years to completely restore a fully functional Tabernacle on earth, in preparation for the return of the one true Messiah, Yahoshua (Jesus). 

It is my personal belief that the born-again, spirit-filled body of Messiah is the Tabernacle where His Spirit dwells today, as this is what the Scripture teaches. (1Cor. 3:16-17)  It is also my personal belief that the living Tabernacle was complete and fully functional during the first century, from the time of Acts 2 forward. Moreover, just like the first Tabernacle (and later the Temple) suffered great deterioration over the first 530 years, so did the assemblies of the one true faith over the first five centuries A.D.

Note: From the time of the destruction of the first temple, the temple at Yarushalayim was never completely restored as there was no Ark of the Covenant.

2.      2.  Our overall lack of understanding concerning the fullness of the restoration work of the Spirit in these last days has been the primary catalyst for the many thousands of schisms that presently defines the world-wide assemblies of those who adhere to the one true faith of the Scriptures.

3.    3.  The correct understanding of the restoration work of the Spirit will hopefully comfort and encourage all the saints of every sect and denomination.  It is my hope that it will help every believer to make the needed transition for His entire elect bride to be able to work in full cooperation with what the Spirit is doing, in order to prepare us to receive the Groom of Heaven with the honour that He alone deserves.

DEFINING HERESY

What exactly is heresy anyways?  I believe that heresy is best defined as the over-emphasis of any one particular truth.  For example: If my nose was 30% larger than average; one might say that I have a heretical nose.  If the size of my nose was greatly disproportionate to the rest of my face, most people would unintentionally focus more on my nose than on any other part of my face.  As a direct result, when we parted company, the majority would remember my nose and probably forget the rest of my facial features.

WHO AM I?

Since around 2001, I am a born-again, spirit-filled believer in the Messiah of Yisrael who has been on an amazing and miraculous journey, as I sought to prayerfully answer the ageless question, “What is truth?”, from the authority of the full counsel of the Scriptures alone (Genesis – Revelation, per John 8:31-32), and the leading and guiding of the Spirit (John 14:26), with an upright heart (2Thes. 2:10). 

WHAT I DISCOVERED

Once I committed to embark upon this perilous journey I was shocked and many times downright appalled by much of what I “discovered” along the way.  I do not believe it to be an understatement at all when I say that much of the history of the church is very dark and foreboding.  The quagmire we grew up referring to as the history of the church is nowhere near as black and white, or straightforward, as we like to pretend it to be.  The more accurate narratives reveal that much of our history and heritage is downright wicked and dare I say – even Satanic?

ALMOST A CASUALTY

I am just one of many millions all over the world who have very recently been specifically called out to ask and answer the question, “What is truth?”  Unfortunately, most of us who have answered the call have allowed ourselves to become somewhat embittered and hardened along the way.  When the multitude of lies (which we fully believed to be the truth previously) were exposed (seemingly all at once), and we began to realize that the majority of the faith that we were practicing was born out of ancient traditions of paganism and not from the authority of the Scriptures, we quickly became disillusioned with all of Christendom. 

If not for the tender mercies of YHWH, I would have been swallowed up by my own wicked and deceitful heart a long, long time ago.  Like the overwhelming majority of the saints who have gone before me over the last 500+ years, I was so focused on the revelation before me that I was left completely blinded to the progressive revelation that had already been given to the generation(s) which preceded me.  It is for this very same reason that most of the Messianic movement has become completely heretical.

Without proper historical context, the primary emphasis of each additional movement of the Spirit, left unto itself, also became (will become) heretical.  Sadly, many of their proponents were / are.

A BRIEF GLIMPSE AT THE HISTORY OF THE CHURCH

30 A.D. ~ THE LIVING TABERNACLE IS COMPLETELY FUNCTIONAL AND RESTORED

325-1500 A.D. ~ THE UNIVERSAL ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH – Salvation by the prescribed works of the church – The one true faith seemingly died.

AN HISTORICAL OVERVIEW OF THE LAST SEVEN WORLD-WIDE MOVEMENTS OF THE SPIRIT 

————————————————————————————————————————–

1525-1530 A.D. ~ THE BIRTH PANGS OF PROTESTANTISM – Justification by favour through faith – Emphasis on salvation – John Wycliffe, Jon Hus, John Calvin and Martin Luther

1765-1770 A.D. ~ Sanctification – Emphasis on personal holiness – George Whitfield, John and Charles Wesley

1885-1890 A.D. ~ Pentecostalism – Emphasis on the power of the indwelling Spirit

1945-1950 A.D. ~ Charismatic Movement – Emphasis on lay-leadership / discipleship

1980-1985 A.D. ~ Renewal Movement – Emphasis on worship, personal and cooperate

1995-2000 A.D. ~ Restoration – Emphasis on returning to the Hebrew roots of the faith

2007-2013 A.D. ~ Purification – Emphasis on preparing the bride for the return of the Heavenly Groom

————————————————————————————————————————–

Whether you agree with my identification of these seven distinct movements or not, I’d like you to carefully / prayerfully consider the following analysis and working thesis.

As a generalization…

Each world-wide movement was preceded by five years of forceful preaching by a small eclectic band – emphasizing that which was revealed by the Spirit before it really took off.

Each subsequent world-wide movement was rejected by the entrenched, seminary educated, professional clergy-man as being mostly false and even of the devil.

E.g. The Universal Roman Catholic Church flatly rejected as heretics those who would soon become known as Lutherans, Presbyterians, etc.  240 years later, many adherents of the established protestant church would then flatly reject as heretics those who would soon become known as Wesleyans, Methodists, etc.

This pattern has continued on with each subsequent movement that has followed. 

As an unintended result…

Each “new” movement was mostly carried forward by lay men with little to no formal education or training.  These men were characterized by their heavy reliance on the Word and the Spirit and thus they preached that which was revealed with tremendous power.

Each “new” movement was revealed in approximately half the time as the movement before it.  E.g. Whereas 240 years elapsed between the first and second movement, only 120 years elapsed between the second and third movements.

Each “new” movement was preferred by those who proclaimed it, to the partial or full exclusion of the movements which had preceded them.  To the heralders of each revealed movement of the Spirit, the “new” was surely better and preferred over the movement(s) before them. E.g. Most of the adherents of the Hebrew roots / Messianic movement no longer actively share their faith with a lost and dying world and could not even tell you the last time they purposely did so.  Seemingly, they have altogether forgotten the altar of justification and what the first all-important movement was all about!  It is for this reason, more than any other, I assert that the movement is mostly heretical.  

MAKE ME A SANCTUARY, THAT I MAY DWELL IN THEIR MIDST. ~ Exodus 25:8

A careful examination of the seven world-wide movements of the Spirit seemingly reveals that each one corresponds with the seven implements of the tabernacle.

Directly behind the first veil of the tabernacle (which was idiomatically known as “The Way”) we will “discover”…

The Bronze Altar – Justification

The Brazen Laver – Sanctification

Directly behind the second veil of the tabernacle (which was idiomatically known as “The Truth”) we will “discover”…

The Seven Branched Menorah – Pentecostal Movement

The Table of Shew Bread – Charismatic Movement

The Altar of Incense – Renewal Movement

The Hand-held Censer – Restoration Movement

Note: The hand-held censer was only implemented on the Day of Atonement 

Directly behind the third veil of the tabernacle (which was idiomatically known as “The Life”) we will “discover”…   

The Ark of the Covenant – Purification Movement

CONCLUSION

If my analysis and working thesis of the seven movements of the Set-apart Spirit are proven correct, then I would like to propose the following, as a meaningful word of encouragement to the world-wide body and bride of the Messiah.

Yahoshua haMashiach, who is the same yesterday, today and forever, is coming very soon.  He is coming to receive His pure, spotless virgin bride and bring her into the wedding chamber which He has prepared for her. (John 14:2-3)

In a type and shadow picture, the high priest of Yisrael (which I personally believe represents the royal-priesthood of believers in this working thesis) enters into the most set-apart place on one exclusive day of the year – Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement).  On this one particular day only, the high-priest of Yisrael is invited to come behind the “life” veil and experience a “face to face”, intimate encounter with the living Elohim of Heaven and Earth.

In order for the high-priest to enter into the “wedding chamber”, he must first take off all of his royal priestly attire and strip down to his linen shirt and breeches and nothing else.  Like a timid virgin bride wearing delicate lingerie on her honey-moon, the barefoot high-priest enters into the one place that no else in all of Yisrael was able to enter into.

It is my personal belief that the primary work of the Spirit of YHWH during these last few years, before the Messiah returns, is the purification of the bride.  This movement will be characterized by YHWH stripping away EVERYTHING from the elect-bride of His favour – that is not worthy of Him.  Just like the high-priest of Yisrael, it is His preference that we surrender everything to Him willingly and freely.

However, if we are the elect bride of His favour and we do not surrender all freely to Him, by the unction of His Spirit, then we better best believe that He will take away from us whatever it is that we are holding onto.  While the primary emphasis of the last movement of the Spirit is the purification of the mature-warrior bride of His desire, His intent from the beginning was that we would build Him a sanctuary. 

Are you presently going through a season of purification / fiery trials?  Does it seem as though just about everything is being taken away from you?  Have you recently felt that the only person in the pages of the Scriptures you could possibly relate to is Job?  Yes?!!  Then… REJOICE! REJOICE!  It very well could be that you are being purified from every desire of your flesh and every offering of this world, so that your only remaining all-consuming desire will be to enter into His presence at the time He returns for His bride.

INVITATION

Is there anything at all that presently has your heart and affection(s) that you know YHWH Elohim is calling you to surrender completely to Him?  It is YHWH’s desire that you would freely give up anything / everything that would keep you from being 100% unashamed at His appearing.  It is my prayer that you would do so today!

“Look out, brothers, lest there be in any of you a wicked heart of unbelief in falling away from the living Elohim, but encourage one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened by the deceivableness of sin.  For we have become partakers of Messiah if we hold fast the beginning of our trust firm to the end, while it is said, “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” ~ Hebrews 3:12-15

Mandela’s Funeral & The scandal of The Deaf Interpreter

Just a thought… And it is a VERY, VERY disturbing one at that… The “phony” interpreter for the deaf claims to have seen messengers sent from Heaven that descended from on high, who came to observe Mandela’s funeral, and that is the reason he was not able to interpret anything that was being said. He also claims that he was fearful out of his mind and therefore was not able to communicate intelligibly as a result.

The first, natural tendency is to think that this suggestion seems rather laughable and completely implausible. It is also tempting to think that the placement of this “fake” interpreter, “with an unknown history of severe mental disorder” (hint, hint, wink, wink) is simply the typical incompetence we have all learned to expect from the South African government.

However, YHWH is the one true Sovereign who reigns upon the throne and I would like to suggest that perhaps He actually did send His messengers to Mandela’s funeral and that the man is telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth – 100%.

Why do you think that YHWH would do this?

Well, consider for a moment… when He sent messengers to Babel – it was to witness / confirm that they were guilty of trying to overthrow His sovereignty and then to bring three distinct judgments upon the people. I.e. Confusion, the sword and severe mental impairment. (According to the combined accounts given in the Scriptures and the book of Jasher – which I do not claim to be the inspired Word of Yah.) YHWH also sent messengers to the cities of Sodom and Gomarah to confirm / witness that they were in total rebellion against Him and lawless in every way and then to bring judgment upon their depravity. (Genesis 18 & 19)

Could it be… that YHWH sent messengers (maybe the seventy watcher’s of the nations referred to in Daniel) to Mandela’s funeral to witness / confirm that all of the leaders of the world would recognize and honour (with great adulation) a corrupt, torah-less and wicked man and not give any of the esteem, honour and praise to the one true and living Elohim of the Scriptures (to whom it all belongs), Who alone has preserved the people of the land of South Africa (and the world – I might add) and kept them for these twenty years and six millennium besides?!

Yahweh has spoken through many of His servants the prophets that a time of very great trouble is presently at the door of South Africa and the entire world too. Several of them have stated that unprecedented trouble would commence with Mandela’s death. (Myself included)

I personally believe that the message of this very strange event is two-fold.

First ~ Their words were many and great, but they said absolutely nothing of any meaning, weight or value in the eyes of YHWH!

Second ~ The messengers have come and they have witnessed / confirmed that all the nations of the world have rejected the one true Messiah, Judge and King of the world and have instead given all the honour, praise and esteem to a mere mortal of whom no such honour was ever deserving.

The time of Ya’acob’s trouble is here! It is even at the door! I wish we’d all been ready… but alas it was not meant to be.

Shalom, shalom, Your servant and His, R

Ps ~ Oddly enough, the only reason the whole world knows about the presence of the messengers is because of the international scandal caused by the “phony” interpreter. Otherwise we would never have even known about it. Yah is truly Sovereign over all the affairs and dealings of men!

THE MOST AMAZING BOOK ~ I WOULD LIKE TO RECOMMEND TO YOU

Shalom, shalom my dearest family and friends in YHWH,

I posted the following questions to FACEBOOK approximately one month ago.

I want to know how do you answer the following question(s)…

If YHWH (the “God” of the Bible) is so great, how come His “plan of salvation” has never been heard of by an estimated 2 billion people living today and the overwhelming majority of people on this planet alive today (and in the past) are condemned to an eternal and fiery judgment according to most of Christendom?

Also, since the devil has convinced many more people to follow after a lie than YHWH has convinced to follow after the truth, wouldn’t that make the devil the real winner and so much greater than YHWH?

Please do not take offense, as I am simply HONESTLY challenging the essence of the faith of what most Messianics, Hebrew Roots, Christians and Jews claim to believe…

How do you honestly answer these two questions???!!!

In direct response to my inquiry, I was given a book to read…
Creation’s Jubilee by Dr. Stephen E. Jones
It is available as a free pdf download at the following web-site (below).  Even though it is a free download, I would like to suggest you give a love offering to the author and support him in his work, if this book blesses you even as it has blessed me – greatly!

http://www.gods-kingdom-ministries.net/teachings/books/creations-jubilee/

I reckon this book is the single most important book I have ever read, apart from the Scriptures.  The content / overall message of this book is in 100% agreement with what the Spirit has been teaching me over the last twelve years concerning the resurrection and the judgment.
In my opinion, Stephen does a masterful job of teaching on this very difficult and controversy subject by showing how the ancient Hebrew understanding, the understanding of the majority of the leaders of the Messianic assemblies for the first three hundred years and the full counsel of the Scriptures are all in complete agreement, and yet it is 100% at odds with what most of “Christendom” believes and teaches about this all important subject.
All my love and affection, from the bowels of mercy,
Sincerely and In Truth, Robert Arthur McDuffie
Ps – Please do yourself a favor and just read the entire book and then judge the message on its merits.  Pray for wisdom and you will receive it!

Pps – I did notice two small factual errors the first time I read this book, but it does not detract from the overall message.

WHAT CONSTITUTES A FALSE PROPHET, ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES?

What constitutes a false prophet, according to the Scriptures?

If someone speak a word in the name of YHWH and it comes to pass, does that automatically preclude him to be a true prophet of Yisrael? If someone speaks a word in the name of YHWH and then it comes to pass, but not according to that person’s original understanding, does that automatically make that person a false prophet?

Consider…

Caiaphas, who was the high priest of Yisrael in the year that Yahoshua died, was not legally qualified to hold the position of high priest (he was a politically motivated appointee of the Roman government) and he led the conspiracy to crucify Yahoshua our Messiah, and yet he prophesied 100% accurately concerning Yahoshua, as recorded in the gospel of John (11:49-52). Does the accuracy of Caiaphas’ prediction coming to pass qualify him as a true prophet of YHWH?

Another example worth considering is found in 1Kings 13. A young prophet from Yahudah gave a word from YHWH that came to pass exactly as it was spoken. In addition, he prayed and the king of Yisrael received an immediate, dramatic and supernatural miracle of healing. However, in the same account he willfully disobeyed the explicit instruction of YHWH and as a result he was immediately struck down dead by a lion. Does his complete lack of the fear of YHWH make him a false prophet, even though his prediction of the future came to pass?

In the very same passage we have yet another example worth considering. An older prophet from Yisrael bald face lies to the young prophet from Yahudah and seduces him to willfully sin against YHWH’s explicit instructions. After he enticed the younger prophet to sin against YHWH, he then prophesied that the younger prophet would be struck down by YHWH as direct result of his disobedience. After the young prophet died he then gave him a proper burial in his very own tomb and confirms that the word the younger prophet gave was a true word from YHWH and would surely come to pass. Is the older prophet a false prophet, because he seduced the younger prophet to turn away from the explicit instruction of YHWH, even though his prediction also came to pass with absolute precision?

The reality is there is a lot more to this discussion than just the surface understanding of what does or doesn’t constitute a false prophet of YHWH and Yisrael.

The basic criteria of a false prophet is first found in Debarim (Deut.) 13. If we were to follow this criteria to the exact letter, then for absolute certain every Christian pastor would have to be put to death over the last 1900 years and most of the Messianic / Hebrew Roots leadership as well. (If you believe this statement to be in error or an exaggeration in any way, then you do not have the correct understanding of Debarim 13 – Period!) The second criteria of a false prophet is found in Debarim (Deut.) 18:15-22. The context of this passage is telling the reader there is only one completely true prophet who is worthy to be feared and that is Yahoshua haMashiach. Every man is a liar and only YHWH is true!

Finally, the cannon of the word of YHWH was closed with the final Revelation, which was given to the beloved taught one, Yahonan. The idea that anyone today can proclaim anything “new” that has not already been proclaimed in the pages of the Scriptures is patently false. YHWH is not going to add to His Word or take away from His word. His word alone will stand forever and ever.

The gold standard throughout the ages of a true prophet of YHWH, is that they command the people to repent in His most set-apart Name! Repentance throughout Scripture has always meant to return to a right relationship with YHWH and obey His judgments, explicit instructions and laws. Anyone who tells you otherwise is… well… a false prophet of Yisrael.

Shalom, shalom, R

Ps – I look forward to hearing your comments, questions and feedback…

MORE CONFIRMATION – THE TIME OF YA’ACOB’S TROUBLE BEGINS ON SEPTEMBER 5th 2013

A PROPHETIC WORD TO SOUTH AFRICA AND THE NATIONS

DISCLAIMER:  I do not know who gave the following prophetic word.  I also do not know if it is meant to be understood spiritually or literally or both.  All I know for absolute certain is that this word agrees 100% with everything that I have heard from the Set-apart Spirit of YHWH since 2010 and it will come to pass! 

I am in no way a part of any sect or group of people that propagates the overthrow of any government, either directly or by association.  I firmly believe in the sovereignty of Heaven over all the affairs of men as taught by the full counsel of the Scriptures and explicitly stated in Mizmore (Psalm) 75:6-7

“For exaltations are neither from the east, Nor from the west nor from the wilderness. (7) But Elohim is the Judge – He puts down one, And exalts another.”

Shalom and Greetings in the name of Yahoshua our Messiah,

This prophetic word (pasted below) was given right around the same time that I was told by the Spirit that I was coming to Johannesburg, South Africa to minister the prophetic word.  I confirm that this vision is true and it has been given by YHWH Elohim, as it agrees with everything that the Spirit has spoken to my heart since the day that I have arrived here in South Africa. 

Let all those who have “ears to hear and eyes to see” declare “Baruch YHWH”, as the Spirit is speaking to the bride that her time has come to “arise and shine for her light has come and the esteem of the living Elohim has risen upon her”.  The time of the fulfillment of this vision is very close at hand.  It is even at the door!!! 

Prepare! Prepare! Prepare!

The Reform – Prophetic Vision for SA – 2009

The Reform

INTRODUCTION

In middle 2009, early one evening, I received the majority of the waking visions that are described below – these were received in one session on one evening.  I was sitting in an upright position praying whilst receiving these visions from the LORD and I am specifically stating this so that it must not be confused with the possibility of dreams or sleeping visions.  Due to the controversial nature of these visions, I have held them back from publication whilst waiting on the LORD for instructions on the right time to release them.  That time has now come.

[Where I supply other complimentary information that was received around this occasion and not on this specific evening then it is indicated as such. ]

The theme of the visions received is basically an extension of the well-known story line of events described by Niclaas (Siener) van Rensburg.  It overlaps slightly with the end of the prophetic visions received by Oom Niclaas but then describes the events that follow after the events described by him.  It is the story of the time period referred to by Oom Niclaas as “The Reform”.  He likened it to the reform as described in the book of Nehemiah, chapter 13.  I only discovered this in December of 2009 since I hadn’t read any books about him for about 7 years and had forgotten much of the content until the LORD allowed me to take a look at it in December 2009.  I realised the LORD’s wisdom in this so as not to allow me to confuse the source of the information received and also to keep me from being influenced in my interpretation of these visions by what was written by Oom Niclaas and about him.

THE ROLE PLAYERS

In the visions described by Oom Niclaas he refers to two different individuals whom I am calling “The President” and “The General”.  These individuals make their appearances in the visions received by myself, and described below, and are two distinctly different people with different roles.  Much confusion seems to exist around the visions of Oom Niclaas where these two individuals are confused with each other and are often believed to be one and the same person – which is not the case.  You hear people speaking about “The man of God”, “The man in the brown suit”, “The man with the grey beard”, “The man in the grey suit”, “the new national leader”, etc.  To make it easier to identify them in the visions of Oom Niclaas you need to remember that The General is a military leader that makes war and leads the Boer Nation through this dark time to come.  The President is a spiritual leader that supports the war effort of The General, knows him well and fights with him.  It is The President that finally takes the reigns as the man in charge of the Boer Nation.  Since he is a spiritual leader he should be seen as a representative or emissary of Yahweh, a kind of temporary caretaker or earthly shepherd of the Boer Nation flock.  Tasked by The LORD to implement a non-secular government based on Biblical principles – but viewed by the world as an ultra-conservative right-wing dictator.

[There two role players have appeared in other visions received by myself from time to time and they are usually collaborating in some manner.  I have seen them addressing soldiers before the war started and leading them in prayers of repentance.  I have also seen them lying next to each other in a trench with rifles in their hands, waiting on the enemy.]

Brother Kislev as the LORD calls him is a character that appears a few times in my visions and then mostly to assist with prayer and Holy Communion.  He is a man known to the above two characters as a trusted friend and a man of God.

THE VISIONS

For the sake of clarity I am splitting the description of the visions received into different sections that play itself out in different places and time periods.  I have to say however that the whole story line was received in one session and one continuous flow of visions received from the LORD.

The reader is advised to keep in mind that these visions can have actual meaning as well as symbolic meaning.  The important thing is that they tell a prophetic story of what is to come and they are told in a way that the LORD wants to share them with us.  It is also important to remember that the time line of these visions is not necessarily chronological. 

THE INAUGURATION

[This plays of at the time after the completion of the war and conflict, inside our borders, as described in the visions of Oom Niclaas van Rensburg and Johanna Brandt.  Since the President is in military uniform it could be possible that the country is still at war possibly in the North as described in the visions of Oom Niclass].

The vision starts off with the inauguration of The President as the new president of the country.  A stage is built in an open area such as you would find at a music concert or an evangelical outreach.  A large crowd is gathered at this open air event.  Sitting on stage, in the background, are some of the role players in the war and some close family of The President.  A small podium is on the stage with a microphone and I see the president entering the vision from the back and taking his place behind the microphone.  He is dressed in military uniform but with no rank insignia at all.

He is wearing a Talith around his neck like a scarf.  [Talith = The Hebrew people and also Messianic Jews wear these from time to time.  It is also called a prayer mantle or prayer shawl.]

He silences the roaring crowd and I can hear him speaking.  He invites them to pray with him and he proceeds to pray the LORD’s prayer from Matt. 6:9.  He then says a confession of faith out loud declaring his Christian faith in The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit.  He then made an oath and declared himself the servant of the LORD and accepted the role as temporary caretaker of the people within the borders drawn by the LORD and for as long as the LORD so wishes and continues to find His servant able and suitable to perform this function. 

[It would seem that the borders of the country have been redrawn or are at that time in the process of being redrawn as a result of the wars fought on various fronts – this is alluded to in various other prophecies as well]

There was a new flag present and it seemed to be the new national flag of the country.  It was a plain blood red flag.  [Note the symbolism and reference to a vision by Oom Niclass of the Vierkleur dipped in blood.]

The also sang in interim national anthem namely: Amazing Grace.

THE INAUGURATION FUNCTION

The vision then took me to another venue inside a hall.  It looked like a school hall and there were about two hundred guests present at a dinner function.  They were seated at round tables in a jovial atmosphere.  The President called on “The Brave General” to come forward and receive a medal of honour for his service rendered to the country and he was confirmed as vice-president of the country.

[It is my opinion from other prophetic word received that the country was ruled by some sort of military government or council for a period of time up to this point, with the General in charge until now.]

Brother Kislev was then called upon for prayer and to serve Holy Communion.

THE FIRST “CABINET” MEETING

The vision then took me to a boardroom where a meeting was taking place between seven people.  Outside the boardroom was a large crest on the wall.  It seemed to be the new national badge/emblem or crest of the country.  It was a golden menorah set on a burgundy background almost like the one used by Potchefstroom University.  Some scripture was engraved on it but I can’t remember what it was.

Inside the boardroom were The President and The General and 4 other men and one lady.  Brother Kislev made an appearance again and served them with Holy Communion after which he left the room.  The group was referred to as the Presidential Council or Presidentsraad in Afrikaans.

ADDRESSING THE PRESS (Announcing the Reform)

The vision then took me to another place and another time, where a press conference was going on.  The president was addressing the press and I could hear him speak – I am no expert in these matters but it seemed like a really large international press conference.  He was wearing the Talith around his neck again like a scarf and he had the Bible in his hand.  He made various statements to the press in a really long speech of which I could not remember all the detail afterwards, but herewith some of which I can remember.

1. This government will be run according to the principles set out in this book [holding out the Bible] and in accordance to the laws and rules and regulations spelt out by our God, Yahweh in this book; The Holy Bible.  This will be the law of this land and where any doubt exists, the interpretation will be agreed upon by the apostles and prophets appointed by the LORD.

2.  This government invites all Christians, Jews, Israelites and Hebrew people wherever they may be in the world to join us and find safe haven and protection inside our borders.  We want to make it clear that even though we have a difference of opinion with Non-Messianic Jews, that we consider them God’s people and that they will always find a safe haven with us.

3. We are today declaring war against Satan and all his agents.  We are declaring war against all idolatry, false religions, and false doctrine inside the borders of this land.  We are hereby giving all false religions 30 days notice that their places of worship will be destroyed and that they are to take note that it is illegal to worship any other god than Yahweh inside the borders of this land.  The appropriate legislation will be passed to criminalise the worship of any other gods and to disown and destroy all the places of worship including known satanic altars such as the Voortrekker Monument and other sites.

4. We are declaring war against all activities related to Satan and his strategies.  The following are illegal with immediate effect and the appropriate legislation will be put in place to criminalise this:  He then named almost every worldly sinful activity that you can imagine from abortion, to homosexual activities to pornography, prostitution, etc. as well as a range of secular activities that can lead to sinful behaviour such as age restricted television and movies and inappropriate internet content.

5. The first act to be passed by this government will be known as the Sabbath Act and will regulate the observing of the Sabbath and other festivals and feasts introduced by Yahweh in the Bible.  It will announce allowed business hours for all shops and businesses and various new public holidays.

6.  A seven step criminal punishment system will be introduced, as instructed by the LORD, starting with community service for minor offences and ending in the death penalty for serious offences. 

7. He announced that the government will spend one tenth of all its revenue on evangelising its people and the international community.

ADDRESSING THE CHURCHES

The vision then went to another time and place inside a large modern conference venue where all the leaders of the Christian churches were gathered.  They were addressed by The President and another member of the Presidential Council.  They were informed in no uncertain terms that they were to stop teaching false doctrine in their churches.  They were handed books that stipulated the false doctrine and activities that had to end and were given strict deadlines to adhere to or face the alternative of being closed down.

There were also warned of emblems and symbols in their churches and church towers that were copied from pagan symbols.  They were to remove and destroy these within a certain time period.

DESTRUCTION OF PLACES OF WORSHIP

Finally the vision took me to the streets of Johannesburg where the destruction of the places of worship of false religions such as Islam were going on.  I saw a military group of soldiers guarding a destruction crew that were using a destruction vehicle resembling the wrecking ball destruction machinery.  They were destroying buildings and then removing all the rubble.  They then erected palisade fencing around each site and some of these sites received a large wooden cross that was planted in the middle of the empty piece of land.  They were confronted by protestors that were resisted with violent force and gunfire.

Then I saw myself standing on a hill opposite the Voortrekker Monument [It often represents the Boer Nation in my visions.  It could thus represent members of the Boer Nation watching the event.]  I saw that a large crowd of onlookers and press were gathered to watch the destruction of the Monument.  I watched this vision and couldn’t help to wonder how many Afrikaans speaking Boer people do not have a clue of the whole sun god worship thing going on with the monument and how they would react to this “emblem” of their heritage being destroyed.

CONCLUSION

In short the conclusion I draw from the above vision is that it is largely not symbolical BUT that even if it were all symbolism then it still draws a clear picture of a prophesied, future, ultra-conservative, non-secular, Christian Boer government.

I thank The LORD Jesus Christ of Nazareth for this vision and prophetic revelation of His will for this land and the people in it.  Revelation 19:10 – “…worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

Psa. 150:6 Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.  Praise the LORD!

Scripture: Psalms 37:1-8

 

(1)  Do not fret because of evil-doers, Do not be envious of the workers of unrighteousness.

 

(2)  For they soon wither like grass, And fade like green plants.

 

(3)  Trust in יהוה, and do good; Dwell in the earth, and feed on steadfastness.

 

(4)  And delight yourself in יהוה, And let Him give you the desires of your heart.

 

(5)  Commit your way to יהוה, And trust in Him, and He does it.

 

(6)  And He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your right-ruling as midday.

 

(7)  Rest in יהוה, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man doing wicked devices.

 

(8)  Abstain from displeasure, and forsake wrath; Do not fret, also to do evil.

 

Remembering/Guarding/Performing the Set-apart Sabbath of YHWH

Remembering/Guarding/Performing –

the Set-apart Sabbath of YHWH

Many people have written me recently and have asked me if I would please write an article about how we are to remember the Shabbat and to keep it set-apart.  In all reality this is such a very simple subject to teach about and so this will probably be the shortest article of my life (Yeah Right! – :0)  ).  So, even though I never really wanted to write this article, I feel absolutely compelled to do so at this time.

As I have said many times before – the truest maxim of learning is that the answer is always found within the question.  If you never ask the right question(s) how will you ever come into the knowledge of the correct answer.  Throughout the ages man-kind has primarily concerned itself with asking the wrong questions – altogether. 

When it comes to the question(s) I am constantly asked concerning the guarding of the Sabbath commandment – more often than not Yah’s people are still asking the wrong question(s). 

The fact of the matter is – there is one and only one commandment on how to keep the seventh day Sabbath set-apart.  That commandment (mitzvah or fourth word of the covenant of betrothal) is found in Shemoth (Exodus) 20:8-11; 31:14-17 & Debarim (Deut.) 5:13-15.

The only thing that we are explicitly commanded to do on the seventh day is to rest is in His presence.  To “rest” does not mean to take a day off and lay in bed all day.  That is not what it means to “rest”.

To rest means to cease/stop doing whatever it is that we were previously doing and to do something completely and totally different/unique.  Every truth revealed in the Scriptures is first revealed in Bereshith (Genesis).  The first Sabbath ever recorded is found in Bereshith.  On the first – seventh day, YHWH Elohim ceased from His creative work and did something completely and totally unique.  He walked with His creation in the Garden, which He had planted in Eden.

The Creator met with the creation and they enjoyed the deepest most wondrous fellowship together in intimacy and the purest affection.  They walked together.  They talked together.  They laughed together.  They cried together.  It was pure unadulterated wonder!  It was completely and totally AWESOME! 

The Sabbath day is listed as the first of all the Heavenly appointments that YHWH has established with His set-apart people – Yisrael (as found in Way Yiqra (Lev.) 23).  In other words, it is the first priority of YHWH on His set-apart calendar to meet with His people on His appointed and set-apart day.  Every seventh day He has set a specific and designated time that He desires to meet with His people and for His people to meet with Him.  Our Heavenly Father has created us to desire to meet with Him and to know/enjoy fellowship with Him at the deepest and most intimate levels.  He desires to satisfy us completely with His presence, affection and love. 

ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?

The One True King of the Universe desires to meet with you – by a heavenly set appointment.  Yes – you personally!  Now I want you to imagine that the most important person you can possibly think of desires to meet with you by specially arranged appointment for a twenty-four hour period and even desires to stay the night at your home.  How much thought and care would you put into making arrangements to prepare for this person’s visit?  Would you prepare with all your heart, mind and being or would your preparations be haphazard and careless?

Would you consider it a burden that the most important person in the world was coming to visit with you in your home or would you consider it a most unbelievable honor and a great blessing to be cherished?  Would you prepare a special meal?  Would you use the best serving wear, cutlery, glasses and dishes?  Would you take care in setting just the right ambiance/atmosphere?  Would you have all the necessary commerce completed before the arrival of your guest or would you take time out of your visit to engage in some on-line banking or a quick trip to the shops?

Would you stay up late and into the long hours of the night so that you could make the most of your visit or would you retire as early as possible?  Would you invite your closest friends, family members and/or relatives or would you keep your important visitor exclusive to yourself and immediate household?

Are you beginning to feel convicted?  Like so many multitudes before you, are you guilty of giving more attention to preparing for important guests of the human kind than the Set-apart One of Heaven and Earth? 

THE RIGHT QUESTION!

What is our true motivation for keeping the set-apart Sabbath of Elohim?  If our motivation is anything less than our heart’s desire for greater intimacy and fellowship with our Heavenly Father – then we are completely missing the whole point of remembering/keeping/performing the weekly set-apart Sabbath appointment!    

You see beloved, many of the mitzvot (commandments/words of the covenant), mishpatim (judgments/statutes) and chukim (special instructions) are not specific as to exactly how we are to carry them out.  It is because of the non-specifications of these various “laws” that traditions have been born and man-made commandments have come into usage. E.g. The washing of hands, putting on of shoes, application of the traditional Mezuzah(s) to the door frame, lighting of the candles on Shabbat, Passover Seders and a whole host of other man-made “rules”.

However, that was never the intent of the Creator.  His intent was that each one of His betrothed ones would be able to consider His mitzvot, mishpatim and chukim within the context of a personal relationship and express their love out of the uniqueness of their relationship – from their heart.  He desires each of us to be empowered by the instructions to asah (a Hebrew word meaning to give life/form/shape/substance to His instruction(s) – even as a potter who sits at the wheel) – out of a heart of desire for the One Whom gave us the instruction(s) to begin with. 

He does not want us to seek the face of men (rabbis, pastors, etc.) concerning how to please Him when we keep/guard His instructions.  He wants us to learn from Him (via His Ruach) what He desires and what He does not desire – out of a heart that is enamored with Him – even as a little child absolutely adores their father and cannot see in Him any fault or defect and completely desires to please Him – from the heart.

For Example: Recently our daughter made us each a pair of tzit-tzits (tassels with a blue thread – Numbers 15:37-41).  Before she made them, she prayed and asked YHWH to lead her and help her to make them according to His heart’s desire.  As a direct result she made us each a set of tzit-tzits that are completely unique and absolutely beautiful and yet still keeping with the letter of the mitzvah (commandment).  When she presented our gift to us, she explained to us in detail why she had made them exactly the way that she did – just as the Rauch (Spirit) had inspired her.     

Nowhere in the Scriptures do we find any kind of commandment that we are to make/wear our tzit-tzits according to the Sephardic, Ashkenazi or Karaite tradition(s).  We are only commanded to make/wear four of them and that they would have a blue thread – as blue is the color for covenant.  There is nothing explicitly wrong with wearing the traditional tzit-tzits, unless of course you are following the traditions of men as if they were the actual mitzvot of YHWH.  How is following the traditions of men loving YHWH your Elohim with all of your heart, mind and being? 

As I have explained in previous writings, the tzit-tzits are the only visible personal, outward adornment to remind us of the covenant as well as our neighbors.  In many ways it is akin to wearing an engagement/wedding ring.  The ring reminds the wearer of the covenant they have committed to and it also proclaims to the world that you are covenanted to another and not to bother trying to entice you as you already belong to another – exclusively!  The wearing of the tzit-tzit accomplishes the same/similar thing.  We see the tzit-tzits and we remember the covenant of betrothal and the one that we are betrothed to.  We see others wearing the tzit-tzits and we know that they too are betrothed in covenant.  

As I look around me, I observe every child’s relationship with their dad is completely unique to each child – even within the context of each family unit.  Each husband and wife relationship that I observe also has its own unique features/nuances to it.  No child/parent and/or husband/wife interaction is a cloned representation of another.  So why is it that when it comes to interacting with our Heavenly Father and/or our Heavenly Groom we are more likely to parrot what we have observed another say or do rather than pursue personal intimacy in our own relationship and let His Spirit lead us in how He desires us to fulfill each instruction and thus know intimacy with Him? 

A Second Example: For some time my wife and I have been convicted about the commandment to write the ten words of the covenant on our door frames and on our gates (Debarim (Deut.) 6:9).  (For the first time since we have been in South Africa we have a place to live that we can call our own.  Previous to Jan. 2013, we had moved four different times – plus we had traveled quite frequently.)  We did not want to simply go purchase a mezuzah and affix it to each door frame in the house.  We wanted to “asah” the commandment from our hearts as the Spirit led us too. 

Jenn prayed and asked the Spirit to lead her and guide her in how she should fulfill the commandment for our home.  In the end, she felt led to write the first ten letters of the Hebrew Aleph-Beyt (representing each one of the ten words of the covenant) on the top and the side of the door frame.  (Our door frame is quite narrow and that is all that would actually fit.)  She did this in the traditional block lettering and in the pictograph letters. 

In addition, she also hand-painted a wooden plaque with all ten words of the covenant in the English language and affixed it right next to the door.  In other words, she has kept with the letter of the instruction while at the same time engaging her heart, mind and being in the fulfillment of it.  I am quite sure that our Heavenly Father is speaking to the heavenly messengers with a proud fatherly heart concerning my daughter’s and my wife’s recent efforts to delight in Him – as they fulfilled His mitzvot.

I can just hear Him bragging in the Heavenly courtroom, “Hey Gavri’el!  Hey Micha’el!  Look!  Did you see what my children did unto Me?  They are FINALLY getting it!  They are really and truly looking to Me for direction as to how to guard/keep and perform My covenant.  I am so very proud of my daughter Joy’s tzit-tizts!  They are so beautiful and they carry so much weight and meaning – because she sought My heart and delighted in Me first – before she made them.  I am so very proud of My daughter Jenn’s doorposts and the sign that she made – unto Me.  It is so special to Me that she sought My heart/face and delighted for Me to lead her every step of the way.  My children are seeking intimacy with Me in the keeping of each instruction and that is why I gave them My covenant in the first place!  So they could know My love for them and they could share in My affection for them.”

I know that most of the people that read this will be sorely disappointed at first.  It is human nature that we want to be told what to do, how to do it and for how long or even what not to do – for that matter.  This is the way that we have all been programmed and conditioned for far too long.  We want to be religious, but our Father in Heaven wants us to be intimate – that is why He created us after all.  If all He desired was a whole bunch of beings to serve Him perfectly day and night – then He would have just stuck with the heavenly messengers who always do His bidding – perfectly in every way! 

What parent doesn’t delight when their child does what is expected of them, with a joyful heart and in a creative way – without having to constantly remind him/her?  What spouse doesn’t delight when their covenanted partner does what is expected of them, with a joyful heart and in a creative way – without having to remind them?

Do you delight in His covenant?  Do you delight in setting His Sabbath day apart from all the rest and making it a remarkable/memorable time for all those you will share it with?  Do you engage the set-apart Sabbath with all you heart, mind and being as the opportunity that it is –  the unbelievable opportunity to empower the mitzvah with heavenly infused energy, because you are setting your heart on things above and letting Him lead you every step along the way.

Always remember and never forget that the mitzvot, mishpatim and chukim are given by the Set-apart One in covenant so that we can know Him in greater and greater intimacy and so that He can shower us with His Fatherly affection and ahav (love) – out of His heart of favor for the child who delights to honor Him with all of our heart, all of our soul and all of our being!  Shema Yisrael!   

 

YeshaYahu (Isa.) 58:12-14 – “And those from among you shall build the old waste places. You shall raise up the foundations of many generations. And you would be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Streets to Dwell In. v.13 “If you do turn back your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on My set-apart day, and shall call the Sabbath ‘a delight,’ the set-apart day of יהוה ‘esteemed,’ and shall esteem it, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words, v.14 then you shall delight yourself in יהוה. And I shall cause you to ride on the heights of the earth, and feed you with the inheritance of Yaʽaqoḇ your father. For the mouth of יהוה has spoken!”              

“Thus saith YHWH, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for My salvation is near to come, and My righteousness to be revealed. v.2 Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the Sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil. v.3 Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to YHWH, speak, saying, YHWH hath utterly separated me from His people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree. v.4 For thus saith YHWH unto the eunuchs that keep My Sabbaths, and choose the things that please Me, and take hold of My covenant; v.5 Even unto them will I give in Mine house and within My walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off. v.6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to YHWH, to serve Him, and to love the name of YHWH, to be His servants, every one that keepeth the Sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of My covenant; v.7 Even them will I bring to My set-apart mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon Mine altar; for Mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. v.8 YHWH ELOHIM which gathereth the outcasts of Yisrael saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.” ~ YeshaYahu (Isa.) 56:1-8

 

Finally, from the four Gospel accounts we know that Yahoshua our Master went to the local gathering of the assembly every Shabbat and so did His talmidim (disciples).  We also know that He was constantly showing compassion through the demonstration of many miraculous healings on the set-apart Sabbath day.  Thus by example He was teaching us that the first “rule” of Sabbath observance is to remember mercy toward all our fellow man. 

 

After all, “the Sabbath was made for man…”

 

Sincerely and In Truth,

Robert McDuffie ~ Gal. 6:14 & 2:20     

Re: UPDATE – JULY 17th & 18th – A PROPHETIC WARNING

Dearest Friends and Family,

I sincerely hope with all my heart that you seriously regarded the word of prophesied Heavenly judgment, which I first gave on July 1st.  I hope that you seriously prayed about it and fasted over it and wept before YHWH because of it.  As for me and my family, we have wept and cried out to YHWH like never before.  We have mourned deeply, we have prayed intensely and we have fasted several times over the last month and a half.

From the beginning of this season, our primary prayer has been, “Thy perfect will be done in all the earth.”  We know that He has spoken and who are we to speak against what He has said.  It has and will come to pass, just as surely as He has spoken!   Most of our tears have been for YHWH Himself as we KNOW how very, very sad He is to have to destroy the sheep of His flock during this time.  We know He does not delight in destroying His very own children, nor does He delight in destroying the nations – for their wickedness in His sight.  We are so very, very sad for our Heavenly Father and the grief that He feels over what He must do just now.

Many, many confirmations have come in from all over the world that this was/is a true Word from YHWH and many confirmations have also come in – as to the exact fulfillment of this prophetic word. 

Early on, I received a word from a dear sister (not previously known to me) who explained to me in all simplicity exactly WHY this judgment was/is quite necessary at this particular time.  “Mad Cow Disease” has/is become pervasive throughout the body of the Messiah!  It must be completely eradicated, before it destroys the entire body – all over the world.

In the natural, there is no known cure for mad cow disease.  They must immediately, completely destroy all the cows, sheep, etc. that have contracted the disease.  Mad Cow Disease is manifest when domesticated herbivores are fed a diet which also consists of the flesh of other animals.  It is because of bad “food” that the infected animals develop a taste for the flesh of other animals and thus the diseased sheep (for example) insanely tries to devour the other sheep.  They have developed an unnatural taste for flesh.

What is true in the natural is also true in the spiritual.  There is no known cure for
“Mad Cow Disease” in the body of the Messiah.  Due to bad “food” (the very toxic brew of bad doctrine(s), many offenses taken to heart and knowingly compromising the Truth of the Scriptures) “Mad Cow Disease” is manifest everywhere throughout the body. 

All over the world, in every assembly, the sheep of the Messiah’s flock have developed a taste for the flesh of their fellow sheep.  The cries of the diseased sheep are, “Vengeance is mine!”  “I will repay!”  “No mercy!”  “No compassion!” 

They refuse to truly forgive, as they have been forgiven – from the bowels of Heaven’s mercy.  They refuse to humble themselves and admit that they are ever wrong.  They refuse to pray and fast and even consider – if they may have any hidden sin(s), wrong attitude(s) or ailing heart(s) condition before the Most Set-apart One. 

They refuse to audit their beliefs before the full counsel of the Scriptures (and if/when they ever do audit their beliefs – they proudly refuse to acknowledge the authority of the Scriptures and instead continue on with their sinful/sin-filled traditions passed down from men – in lieu of the Sovereign Word of Elohim).  They refuse to stand for the Truth that they know un-compromised and choose instead to continue to be friends with the ones who willfully will CHOOSE to compromise the Truth that has been revealed to their hearts.

Starting on Sept. 6th of this year the bride of the Messiah is going to be refined and made white for three full years.  However, before this takes place the Scriptures tell us in Daniel 12:10 that the body will first be purged during this time.  Many translations have translated this word as cleansed.  However, it is in fact – “purged” – as in eliminated from the body of Messiah.

Yahoshua also speaks of this purging in Revelation 3:16 to the assembly at the end of the age. 

“I will spit (purge/eliminate) you out of My mouth.”

THERE IS NO CURE FOR MAD COW DISEASE!  It must be eliminated/purged from the body of the Messiah before the purification of the bride can begin!  Who is this bride He is coming for?  Who is this bride that His heart desires to present to His Son at His 2nd coming?

Friend, let me assure you that just because you have been born again and filled with the spirit does not automatically mean that you are going to be the bride of the Messiah.  This is a very deep subject that is mostly misunderstood by modern believers.  Yah willing – I will be releasing a brand new study this week about who is the bride, who are the guests and who are the citizens of the kingdom.

Let me state right now here and for the record, one of the primary per-requisites to becoming the bride of Yahoshua is the absolute fear of YHWH.  If you do not KNOW the fear of YHWH – then you cannot ever be the bride of His Son.

When I first gave the prophesied word that judgment would fall on July 17th and 18th, almost immediately the Spirit spoke to my heart “Ezekiel 9:9-10” – for the furtherance of my understanding.

“Then he said to me, “The guilt of the house of Yisrael and Yahudah is exceedingly great. The land is full of blood, and the city full of injustice. For they say, ‘YHWH has forsaken the land, and YHWH does not see.’  As for me, my eye will not spare, nor will I have pity; I will bring their deeds upon their heads.”     

From this passage of Scripture, I knew that the judgment foretold was upon the whole house of Yisrael (all born-again, spirit-filled believers) and the whole house of Yahudah (the Jews).  I also knew that the judgment prophesied was one of absolute righteous judgment.  YHWH was marking the bride of His covenant with the mark of the covenant (the Hebrew letter Tav).  Finally, I knew that most people would not even consider the possibility of this revelation level fulfilment of Ezekiel 9 – as being the 100 level fulfilment of the prophesied events of July 17th and 18th.

Like it or not – ready or not, the bride of His covenant has been marked and the time for the slaughtering of the diseased sheep is now at hand!  It is going to be swift, it is going to bloody and it is going to be ugly.   

Early on, before I published the word given, I too thought it was very possible that many believers were going to die a violent and terrible death on the 17th and 18th, even people that I know personally who are presently living in gross un-confessed and un-repented sin.  However, this was not the word given, nor is it the word which I published to two different blogs – as well as distributed to my e-mail list and posted to our FACEBOOK ministry page.

Never-the-less, I still fully believed this to be true and I even said so quite emphatically to several people during the course of conversation over the last three weeks.  I based this belief on many “evidences” that seemed to be 100% self-evident at the time. 

Even though I emphatically stated that I fully believed that men could/would literally die on these two days, I NEVER said that this is what I heard – only that I considered it to be a very probable outcome based on all the overwhelming “evidence” that I was given over the last month and a half.   If anyone mistook what I personally believed to be true with the actual word that I distributed, then I sincerely apologize and ask your forgiveness.     

The Heavenly declared order (according to the Scriptures) is as follows…

1st – Judgment Is Rendered

2nd – The Sentence Is Given

3rd – Execution Is Carried Out

Shalom, shalom to everyone, as you continue to listen and obey the voice of YHWH’s set-apart Spirit in 100% obedience, with expedience and with joy!  It is my prayer and hope that you seriously heeded His warning and that you are the bride that will be revealed at His Son’s coming.

Come Yahoshua, Come!         

Sincerely and In Truth,

Robert Arthur McDuffie ~ YeshaYahu 1:19-20
